Redskins | No change RG3 plays in Week 8

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:54:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, there is no chance Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) plays in the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Oct. 27, multiple sources said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins have a bye in Week 10, and it's entirely possible we do not see RG3 until Week 11, giving him three more weeks to get back to 100 percent.

Redskins | Doctors to decide Robert Griffin's status

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:28:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (ankle) status for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be determined by team doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "It's up to the trainers and doctors right now, they gotta clear him, No. 1, like I said," Gruden added. "No. 2, he's got to feel good. But it's gonna be a process of how he feels tomorrow, how he feels the next day, and how he's throwing and how he's playing the position." Griffin took part in individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and took repetitions in the team portion. Gruden said Griffin looked good doing the drills.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will likely be questionable for the game Monday night. Try to avoid using him at FantasyScore this weekend. Better options are out there.

Redskins | Jay Gruden wants to name QB soon

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:52:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III (ankle) and Colt McCoy hopefully will find out the starting quarterback for Week 8 by Thursday, Oct. 23, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin will either start or be inactive for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor this situation to see if Griffin has a chance to play. Griffin could be limited by the injury if he does play, so he may not be a great start for owners. McCoy costs $3,900 on FantasyScore but probably is not a great option to use if he receives the start.

Redskins | Not ruling out Robert Griffin

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 11:06:51 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be ruled out for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has a long way to go in order to be ready, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin must be 100 percent in order to play.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is probably a long shot to play against the Cowboys on Monday night. Don't consider him for your FantasyScore lineup. Colt McCoy is expected to receive the start, and we don't recommend him, either.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to be tested Wednesday

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:39:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."

Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise to see Griffin start against the Cowboys on Monday night. McCoy will be cheap at FantasyScore, but he's not worth considering on the road against a a stout Dallas D.

Redskins | Robert Griffin could start in Week 8

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:04:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare. If he doesn't start, QB Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will almost assuredly start over McCoy when he's ready, so it's definitely time to snatch RG3 up off the waiver wire if he's still out there if you're hurting at the quarterback position. It wouldn't be wise to start either McCoy or Griffin against the Cowboys in Week 8, though.
